president obama and house speaker john boehner may be a positive sign in all of this "fiscal cliff" drama, they spoke yesterday raising hopes that formal talks will resume on how to to avoid across-the-board spending cuts and tax increases. we have been saying this for weeks. they will kick in if a budget agreement is not reached by year's end. >>> a number of state lawmakers had their cars fixed and you paid for it. lawmakers lost the perk of a free car about a year ago at least 37 of them deciding to buy the cars. that was an option. they have been using them when the state sold them. first they had all the cars repaired and maintained at state expense. $78,000 worth of work. >> as a taxpayer, you know, it's my money going to it so it's frustrating. >> doesn't sound fair. we work really hard for our money. >> we do. but a source in the legislature says the work was worth it. the state got more money when it sold the cars that were not bought by the lawmakers but had the repairs done. they got more money for those cars. so i guess it evens out. >>> same-sex marriage is now legal in the state of washington. dozens of gay and lesbians got in line

but that's largely being overshadowed by the "fiscal cliff" talks. a lot of worries on wall street if an agreement can't be reached by the end of the year. but as far as of the economy goes, decent news especially on the job market. the labor department reporting that first time unemployment claims fell by 29,000 to 343,000 the lowest level in two months and the second lowest level of the year. it suggests hiring is outpacing firing. the four-week average down to 381,000, still an effect from sandy affecting that number. as far as retail sales go in november, we saw a pretty decent gain up 3/10ths of a percent after a similar loss the month before. better when you strip out falling gas prices. sales were up 8/10ths of a percent. wholesale side inflation fell faster than expected last month. >>> google has come back to apple as far as maps go. apple having all sorts of problems with its map that replaced google maps a few months ago led to an apology from the ceo tim cook the firing of a long-time direction and lots of bad directions. so apple will bring back google maps to its ipho
